Customer Question
My 2001 saab 93...

My 2001 saab 93 se 2.0 turbo makes a flutter noise when i let off the gas while moving

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Saab. The Saab Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

My car has 218,000 miles. I put a newly rebuilt turbo on it, timing chain kit,

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

No but i want to know where the fluttering noice is.

Mechanic's Assistant: OK! The Saab Mechanic will help you with the diagnostics so you are sure to get this fixed right. Is there anything else important you think the Saab Mechanic should know about your Saab?

I keep the car in almost perfect shape, change oil every 3000 to 3500 miles
